'For me Sanne is not „The Choreographer”. She is the inspiration for finding myself. Working with her is the best way to understand what my soul experiences at the exact moment and what my body needs to do. She grabs me and throws me out from the ring of my everyday process, leaving the unimportant problematic issues behind. This leads to an unconscious dance, full of self expression, freedom and emotions. Isn’t that the meaning of life?
Later she leaves me in the studio with the thought: „I never should forget what is to enjoy being myself, being happy, being a dancer. A funny one.” - Just as she is herself. Sanne is a very focused and open minded creator who always knows when and how to involve a good laugh into a hard work.
My solo work choreographed by Sanne is not a set of movements she told me to do, its the physical essence of the atmosphere, moments, energy and thoughts we shared in our life during the rehearsals and outside the rehearsals while creating the piece „Mira Mira”.'

I started taking private classes with Sanne because I ‘wanted to dance more’. From the beginning Sanne has been capable of taking this vague notion to a higher level. She knows exactly how to customize our classes to my personal needs and they have evolved into sessions that are so much more than ‘just’ dancing: Sanne’s classes really help me clear my mind and put issues in perspective. Every class with Sanne I consider as a gift and not only have I found a wonderful coach and trainer, I have gained a good friend in the process, as well.

'I have been working with Sanne for several years and during this period she helped me growing as a dancer and as a creative mind. I love the freedom of expression she leaves to her dancers.
Everything we created together was a true collaboration between choreographer and dancers, focusing on their peculiarities. Starting from coached improvisations the creative process becomes a journey where anyone can truly explore his qualities and challenge his own limits.'

'Emarkus had een geweldig inspirerende moderne dansworkshop bij Sanne. Het hele team is op een professionele en ongedwongen manier uit haar comfort zone gehaald.
Door op een expressieve en niet-alledaagse manier met collega’s samen te werken in een dansprogramma, werd er een appel gedaan op creativiteit, ruimte geven en betrokkenheid bij elkaar.
Sanne weet een goed sfeer neer te zetten, waar iedereen de juiste aandacht krijgt, uitgedaagd wordt en zich kwetsbaar durft op te stellen en is knap gedaan in zo’n korte tijd.
Daarnaast hebben wij als team ook gewoon heel erg gelachen en waren wij verrast dat wij een mooie dans performance hebben weten neer te zetten. Daar waren wij als team best trots op! Wij kunnen Sanne zeer aanbevelen. Dankjewel Sanne.'
